The 2-0 win over Swansea in the league is the only thing Manchester United fans have had to smile about in January. After losing to Spurs on New Year's Day, United went on to get knocked out of the FA Cup in the third round, were beaten by Chelsea, then this week were knocked out of the League Cup.
Having avoided Manchester City in the draw for the semi-final, it appeared as though United's route to the final would be simple. Surely they would be able to beat a team in the relegation zone over two legs?
Apparently not. So unless they can miraculously win the Champions League this season, all hopes of a trophy are gone, with a fourth-placed finish the best United can hope for. So where did it all go wrong?
